Out and about

Rob attended the British Endodontic Society’s Spring Scientific Meeting in London last month. The subject under discussion was the Management of Non-odontogenic Facial Pain – pain that mimics toothache but is caused by other factors such as muscle cramps.

Rob enjoyed the sessions: “The speakers came from Aarhus University, Denmark, and were excellent. Non-odontogenic pain is not unusual – I have had patients who insist that I take a tooth out which is causing them severe pain, but I manage to demonstrate that the pain is caused by clenching and muscle cramps. Sometimes a simple fix like a bite guard can solve the problem. It’s a fascinating phenomenon!”
